I love this. I actually wish that every hiring manager would do this, even
when not frustrated. This person may have been too obtuse to take the
advice, but most people would probably benefit. I've had interviews that I
thought went great, but didn't get the job, and I'd love to know why,
especially if it's something I can correct.
